MetLife Center for Special Needs Planning℠

This survey creates a more in-depth and comprehensive picture of the financial and day-to-day challenges that the families of children and adult dependents with special needs face, as well as where they see increased need for support services and professional guidance. The current survey of more than 1,000 caregivers arrives at a pivotal time for these families with special needs as the nation’s financial resources are stretched – assistance programs at the local, state and federal levels are either being cut, limited or reassessed – and these changes are acutely felt by caregivers. A major goal of this new study is to help families which have dependents with special needs – along with the broader special needs community – understand what resources are currently available and what steps can be taken by caregivers to help secure their dependent’s financial future.
